Our expert says:
OK, you're describing someone with really significant personal problems needing psychological care soon, and which shouldn't be allowed to go unattended and to cause problems for you as well as him. He needs help to sort out his inferiority feelings and low self-confidence, and to become comfortable in the real world, where men and women talk to each other every day, without this usually or inevitably meaning illicit relationships are starting up.
You can't have a happy future with someone like this, who has no confidence in himself or you - but if he recognized that he has a real problem, and saw a psychologist sincerely for helping dealing with it, this could probably be sorted out.
Its not your responsibility to treat him for his problems, and besides, you're not licensed as a shrink. But encourage him to get the help he needs, and perhaps make it clear you have no intention of continuing a relationship with him until he has done this and settled his unfinished business.
